Step 3: Find Your Paper

I had some water damaged books in my room (left by another teacher) that were getting moldy, some had lost their jackets.  I hate throwing out books, even old books, so I thought a while and decided to use them in art projects.  The book I found had pictures of airplanes in it and it was about play, so I figured making a paper airplane toy out of it was fitting.

I started by using the nose cone pattern and cutting it out.  The large dashes are where the pattern should lay on a fold of the paper, so you have to identical pieces hooked together.
This is great! I needed a project to do with my second graders for Earth day and we are reading about the Wright Bros. right now, this is fantastic!
Very cool! Let me know how they turn out!
We did this today and it turned out fantastic! Thanks for the great idea!
I'm so glad to hear that! Do you have any pictures, I would love to see them!
